As the warm weather picks up, we inch closer to the summer festivals. Glastonbury, with a staggering daily attendance of around 200,000, is the largest music festival in the UK.

In this article, we’ve put together a list of the acts we are most excited to hear at this year's festival:


Nothing but Thieves

A local band to Monitor Audio Group, the Southend-on-Sea-born indie/alternative rock act will be returning to the Other Stage, where they also performed in 2017. Formed in 2012, the band were praised for early tracks such as ‘Itch’ and ‘Trip Switch’, both of which appeared on their 2015 self-titled debut record. Their most recent album, ‘Dead Club City’, was released in June 2023 to critical and commercial success, topping both the British and Dutch music charts. Lead single ‘Welcome to the DDC’ received widespread airplay and praise, winning the BBC Radio 1 Record of the Year.
